There was a lot for West Ham fans to celebrate on Monday evening. It’s been a difficult few weeks, but the team came together when we really needed it – and we looked fantastic against Liverpool.
From front to back, everyone that turned out in a West Ham shirt should hold their head high. Well, apart from Andy Carroll, it seems.
Carroll was brought on towards the latter stages of the game by Manuel Pellegrini, with the boss clearly looking to take advantage of his strength and height.
However, from the moment he was brought on – and since the game ended – a handful of fans have found nothing nice to say about the forward. He didn’t really do a lot wrong, but he did struggle in front of goal – and to be fair he did miss a chance that could have seen us win the game.
Indeed, he’s been at the centre of a lot of criticism on behalf of fans – with most not impressed by his recent form. It seems that he’s got a lot to do in order to win back the acclaim of supporters.
West Ham should've nicked that. Noble should've bagged, Carroll could have if he had a first touch. Snodgrass, Anderson and Rice superb #whufc

The only negative I can say about tonight is that Andy Carroll substitution. Didn’t do anything wrong, but it would have been great to bring on someone like Gomez or Michy for the last 15 mins

Andy Carroll had such a negative impact on our team he really needs to be released in the summer
